Neural Organisation Technique (N.O.T.)
What is N.O.T.?
N.O.T. is a non-invasive modality based on Kinesiology and by using the art and science of Kinesiology for neurological feedback, we can gain information from the body, balance it and then see whether a change has taken place.
N.O.T. is a series of techniques designed to re-organise the nervous system so that the client can function effectively and efficiently without pain or distress. Our nervous system will know what to do when it is restored to its original operating parameters. Wellness can only occur when our nervous system is balanced. Put simply, N.O.T reorganizes your nervous system so that you can function in the way you were designed to!
N.O.T was developed by a Chiropractor, Dr. Carl Ferreri. It is based on the theory that the body is an integrated whole – self-healing, self-regulating, and self-perpetuating (replacing its own tissues).
Dr. Ferreri found that the body and its multitude of functions work like a computer with very specific programs for every eventuality. Some programs like the basic survival systems were built in and other programs were developed, learned or put together as the need arose. Sometimes the programs get corrupted or damaged due to physical, emotional or chemical stress. N.O.T. is designed to find the cause of the stress or damaged program by testing the body in various situations and then gentle techniques are used to reactivate and re-organize the nervous system.
A N.O.T Session
A brief client and lifestyle history is taken before the initial session. The client remains fully clothed during a N.O.T. session and it is recommended that comfortable clothes are worn; long pants and shorts are preferred.
An array of non-invasive tests are conducted, the purpose of these tests is to assess the status of your survival systems and gauge to what extent your nervous system is promoting protective/defensive responses rather than growth and repair in your body.
A variety of gentle spinal, cranial and reflex techniques are then generally reinforced with breathing patterns. A range of physical situations including light/dark, eyes open/closed and any situation of relevant stress are explored to ascertain whether your nervous system is returning to a self-regulating and self-maintaining system.
Clients generally find N.O.T. very relaxing and enjoyable. Amazing changes will occur in your body as your nervous system shifts its attention back to growth and repair.
Who would benefit from N.O.T.?
Optimum function of the nervous system is imperative for complete wellness. Therefore all health problems from head and back aches to sore feet, colds, asthma, and more serious problems can be assisted. Also anyone who wishes to enhance their health, improve their performance or optimize their potential could benefit greatly from N.O.T.
How many sessions?
This number of sessions depends very much on the individual. Usually, the client requires a minimum of 4 – 6 sessions, normally 1 – 3 times per week. It is then recommended that clients have routine sessions once a month or whenever the need arises. N.O.T. may also be combined with Kinesiology.
Recovery of your health and well-being will depend upon the length of time you have had problems and your ability to avoid and resolve stressors in your life.
